Going Native in Tenerife

“Amazingly accurate observations, written in the authors’ typically witty style. A highly accurate snapshot of the real Tenerife, which is sure to seduce tourists looking for things to do other than just sunbathe.”
Chris Shaw, Director, Pink Elephant PR.

“Full of insights, wit and charm, this is the ideal companion as you explore and unlock the secrets of the real Tenerife.”
Leslie Beeson, author ‘Tenerife Lifeline’

No less than 200 pages written with startling insight and fiery passion by husband and wife team Jack and Andrea Montgomery. The couple spent years stomping the streets of every town and village on the island. They trekked along goat trails in the mountains and revelled at fiestas until dawn (all in the name of research of course!). In short, they explored the Tenerife that visitors and even most residents never see… Tenerife beyond the holiday brochures.
